stavn joins Heroic on trial

The 16-year-old Martin "stavn" Lund has joined Heroic on a trial basis, completing the roster.

stavn made a name for himself under Fragsters, impressing online and at smaller LANs despite his very young age. In 2018, his team attended three DreamHack Open events, Bets.net Masters, and reached the playoffs at StarSeries i-League S6.

stavn will get an opportunity to impress in Heroic

Now, after parting ways with Asger "AcilioN" Larsen and using Filip "NEO" Kubski as a stand-in, Heroic have revealed that they will be adding the young Danish talent stavn on trial. The 16-year-old will, therefore, be leaving ex-Fragsters, who are now down to just two members from their 2018 lineup.

In the statement about move, stavn said the following:

"I'm super excited to get this opportunity with Heroic, especially this early in my career. I look forward to representing them in multiple tournaments moving forward, and becoming a member of the Heroic family." - stavn

Heroic's coach, Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu revealed that this move was possible because Benjamin "blameF" Bremer took on the IGL role:

"We’ve been keeping an eye on stavn for quite some time, and I'm really glad we get to trial him for this period, as we are making some changes to the roles in our team. We recently moved blameF to the IGL role, and a player like Martin is exactly what we need right now. What I see in stavn is a young talent with a bright future, and I'm happy he gets to start out here." - peacemaker

stavn will kick off his stint in Heroic at Copenhagen Games and also attend the ESL Pro League group stage with the Danish squad.

Heroic are now:

Denmark Patrick "es3tag" Hansen
Denmark Daniel "mertz" Mertz
Sweden Adam "friberg" Friberg
Denmark Benjamin "blameF" Bremer
Denmark Martin "stavn" Lund (trial)

Brazil Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu (coach)

ok he has only played in optic between nip and heroic and I am 99% sure he was an igl in optic and possibly a half igl in heroic for some time
2019-03-11 19:43
he was optic's igl back then. He might be calling mid rounds sometimes and helping with strats, but not 100% dedicated igl for sure

friberg bad player
2019-03-13 08:59
1. Why the heck their best individual player is IGL. 2. Why dont simply kick Friberg if he's not igling. Only the igl role could explain his awful rating and inability to frag.

It’s not awful, dude.
2019-03-12 02:11
hes not awful tho, but i also dont understand why they tive their best rated player the igl role when they arent a really strong fragging team... They need every bit of firepower they have and restricting their best player wont help the others frag more
2019-03-12 09:31
should add my boy Nato

They should get Niko from Rogue, and put MSL on either OpTic instead of Snappi, or North instead of Cadian.
2019-03-12 15:08
+1 Snappi is horrible igl imo. Due to bad results look at k0nfig , one of the best players is now irrelevant af. Jugi one of the best up&coming awpers is just average. They just gave up...

You can be a decent fragger and IGL, look at glave for example.
2019-03-11 19:33
but that'll require proper preparation for each match like Astralis, if you don't study hard beforehand like most teams then I don't think you can be IGL and decent fragger at the same time.

Put ur best player at IGL, keep friberg despite him being the worst and not danish. kick friberg & get MSL or rezex already.
2019-03-11 19:35
they could even get karrigan but it is too late as it looks like he will join mouz
2019-03-11 19:52

 | 
Switzerland Tang1 
yeah mouz will not pass on karrigan no matter the price whereas Heroic is too poor to afford him.
2019-03-11 20:04
why not friberg as an igl? the it would be more like: blameF: Entry mertz: awper friberg: sup/IGL es3tag: Lurker stavn: Entry and Lurker
2019-03-11 19:36
Friberg is a good temporary solution, not a great IGL imo, he's guessing too much or something

Well Neo was just a standin. Also if they got Neo they would have to all speak English instead of Danish. Also Neo is old and stavn is a young upcoming star with more potential. They already have one old player (friberg).

Are you asking blameF to lose, or to let him loose?
2019-03-12 11:31
as I wrote "let him loose!" He's a beast! He's really nice to spectate ingame, that's why I like him.
